2016 Jeep Cherokee vs 2016 Nissan Rogue

2016 Jeep Cherokee vs 2016 Nissan Rogue

When you're in the market for a crossover SUV, it's hard to make the perfect choice when there are so many options available. Stressful car shopping is not fun or easy, and the team here at Palmen Motors wants to change that. This month we are covering the highlights and differences between the 2016 Jeep Cherokee and the 2016 Nissan Rogue. We want to give you a chance to see how the extra horsepower, classic design, and new interior technology sets the 2016 Jeep Cherokee apart. 

Looking at the exteriors of these two vehicles, it's easy to see that the Nissan Rogue has a more modern design. The streaked back headlights and unique grille make it stand out, but also comes with the chance of looking dated quickly. The eye-catching and historically appealing exterior of the 2016 Jeep Cherokee stands out amongst other crossovers on the road, but has a more timeless design that is sure to look great for years to come. Under the hood, the 2016 Jeep Cherokee offers more horsepower and off-roading capability at higher trim levels. The Rogue's slightly more efficient engine has less power and only offers a few extra miles per gallon. The Jeep Cherokee is still capable of over 30 miles per gallon on the highway, making it a money and fuel saving option!

Base Engine

Both the Jeep Cherokee and the Nissan Rogue have a four-cylinder base engine. However, the slightly larger 2.5-liter I-4 on the Nissan Rogue offers a similar fuel economy rating (with both vehicles getting over 30 miles per gallon) and a lower amount of horsepower.



The 2016 Jeep Cherokee offers more horsepower at the base trim than the 2016 Nissan Rogue. On top of added horsepower, the off-roading capability and additional four-wheel drive options for the 2016 Jeep Cherokee give it the advantage in tough road conditions.


Interior Features

Both the 2016 Nissan Rogue and the 2016 Jeep Cherokee come with a standard first-row LCD screen and Bluetooth connectivity. However, the Jeep Cherokee has a six-speaker audio system compared to the Rogue's four-speaker system, and also includes standard voice recognition.

Interior comfort and convenience come standard on both vehicles, but the sportier and smooth edged Jeep Cherokee offers a functional design. A first-row LCD screen and Bluetooth connectivity comes standard in both the Rogue and the Cherokee, but the 6-speaker audio system with speed-sensitive volume comes out ahead of the Rogue's 4-speaker system without voice recognition. Inside the Rogue, you'll find modern lines, but the Cherokee comes packed with soft touches and sporty luxury. You gain power and style with the Cherokee, and the Rogue can't quite keep up.
